Scientists are often puzzled when members of the public reject what we consider to be well-founded explanations. They can't understand why the presentation of scientific data and theory doesn't suffice to convince others of the validity of "controversial" topics like evolution and climate change. Eugenie Scott, Founding Executive Director, National Center for Science Education, highlights the importance of ideology in shaping what scientific conclusions are considered reliable and acceptable. This research is quite relevant to the evolution wars and the opposition to climate change, and to other questions of the rejection of empirical evidence. Recorded on 10/03/2018. (#34010)
